Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs


Our core value of Respect ensures tolerance of those who have different faiths and beliefs.  Exwick Heights Primary School enhances pupils understanding of different faiths and beliefs through religious education studies; P.S.H.E. work; visits to other schools in different settings to participate in celebrations such as Diwali; welcoming visitors from other schools that are not predominately white British and enjoying a depth of study during themed weeks. During our topic week, the whole school focussed on different continents, studying the beliefs, traditions and customs for the countries within each continent. Learning was shared during assemblies designed by each class.  Through this our pupils gain an enhanced understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society. Our work across the curriculum supports this, along with topic weeks which enable us to explore opportunities (such as the Olympics and World Cup) to study and learn about life and culture around the world.
